Today was the second meeting for our new children’s book group. There were 13 of us today, and we were looking at ‘Wolves in the Walls’ by Neil Gaiman, ‘Field Guide’, the first title in The Spiderwick Chronicles written by Holly Black and ‘Various’ by Steve Augarde.
As at our first meeting, there was a wide variety of opinions and new insights.
What I like most about the book group, apart from the obvious discussion of books by book lovers, is that I’m directed to books I’ve not necessarily read, and may not have read. Particularly when others are particularly passionate about those books.
Next month, we’re looking at Persepolis by Marjane Satrapi, ‘Does My Head Look Big in This?’ by Randa Abdel-Fattah, and ‘Ziba Came on a Boat’ by Liz Lofthouse.
